SQL Server Certification - a database platform primer for your career path

When you need to upgrade your knowledge then training is required, at the same time certifications will help you to keep up on what you have learned!

There is a big debate on the web about whether certifications are important in your career or not, the bottomline is if you do not know the stuff or unable to answer few basic technical questions, it does'nt matter how many certifications you have then you will not get the job, well I'm not starting the same discussion here.  But in the recent times I was presented with the question about SQL Server certification path, as there has been changes to versions & releases of SQL Server during last 3 to 5 years. 

As the current version of SQL Server is 2008 & R2, it is better to highlight on those aspects, to find 2008 path see this Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Certification Paths document and 

Microsoft Learning: Microsoft SQL Server Certification pages.

For the R2 here is the interesting blog post on  Why the SQL Server 2008 Certifications Don’t Cover R2  is a must read, finally

Certification path for SQL Server 2008, whats your choice? - SQL ...

 for your information.
